Bella Luna – Hobo bag with built in Wallet

(3 customer reviews)




A very large, curved, structured shoulder bag with a built-in wallet, the Bella Luna features a roomy interior with pockets inside and out. Open the front flap to an accordion pocket with compartments for cash, credit cards, coins, and pens. The main bag closes with a zipper. Two outside slip pockets and a zipper pocket keep your phone and essentials in easy reach. Inside is a second zippered pocket and slip pocket.


This pattern is for experienced bag makers looking for a very organized bag with many pockets and details. While it is not complicated, creating the Bella Luna requires a good amount of time in order to sew the many compartments. Though it cannot be sewn quickly, the end results are very rewarding.


Photos and illustrations accompany detailed, tutorial-style instructions. Patterns are included for both fabric and interfacing pieces. A cutting chart is provided with details on fabrics and interfacing.  I include fabric and interfacing pattern layouts, and labels to keep your prepared fabric pieces organized while you sew. A team of 12 testers vetted this pattern, testing varied methods and interfacings, editing, revising, and clarifying — ensuring your successful outcome.
